|Nature of Work|
Sales, Sales Support, and Telemarketing is an important part of manufacturers' and wholesalers' success.
Regardless of the type of products they sell, the primary duties of sales people are to make customers interested in their merchandise and to arrange the sale of that merchandise. Sales people generate leads, educate prospects, inform clients, and then close deals, securing company revenue. They help guide product development, ensuring that goods and services are aligned with customer needs and wants.
The process of promoting and selling a product can be extensive, at times taking up to several months. Whether in person or over the phone, these sales, sales support, and telemarketing professionals describe their products, conduct demonstrations, explain the benefits that their products convey, and answer any questions that customers may have.
